Driving Safe This Winter
Unfortunately, when winter weather is present, the possibility of getting involved in an accident tends to increase because of snow and ice. Appropriate accident treatment is required if you become injured. If you live in the Hiawatha or Marion areas, making an appointment with our Chiropractor at Wickwire Chiropractic and Wellness Center can help. Our Chiropractor is experienced in utilizing wellness tactics and relieving pain associated with auto injuries. Here is some information about common conditions treated due to winter weather vehicular accidents.
Neck Pain or Whiplash
Many people deal with neck pain after an auto accident occurs. Whiplash is a common occurrence as the head is jostled around from the impact of an accident. Chiropractic care is an option if neck pain arises after an accident happens. Our Chiropractor uses gentle manipulation movements of the spine and lower neck to reduce joint stress. This allows for blood to circulate and healing to occur.
Body Aches and Pains
If your body twists and turns as a result of an accident, pain is likely to arise in the back, shoulders, arms, or legs. These areas can be treated with routine Chiropractic care. Electric stimulation of affected muscles, massage of stiffened joints and muscles, and physical therapy practices all help in reducing discomfort without the use of invasive procedures.
Concussions and Headaches
If you sustained an injury to your head, the possibility of a concussion or severe headaches is a real concern. These require monitoring to ensure underlying medical conditions are not present. It is best to see a physician if you have a head injury. After you are checked over, seeing our Chiropractor for additional treatment is beneficial. Our practitioner will perform spinal adjustments, use temperature therapy, and massage affected areas to help reduce pain and inflammation, which contributes to pain. Our staff is prepared to provide accident treatment and we have a plethora of conditions treated.
